The Romantic Rebel in Wilson
Trailers of Rebel Wilson’s upcoming release ‘Isn’t it romantic’ has sure set the expectations of a romantic fantasy comedy. Comedy and funny roles are not new for Wilson and playing an Australian should come naturally to her. Wilson, who was born in Australia and spent her childhood in Sydney is one of the rare successful actresses from the continent in southern hemisphere. Rebel Wilson’s journey in Hollywood has been a long, hard working and in many ways fierce and intense one.
Isn’t it romantic is the story Natalie, of an Australian architect in New York city, who is cynical about love. At work, Natalie gets tasks that are the envy of an office assistant, in spite of being an architect by designation. A twist of fate finds her entangled in a love triangle she desperately wants to get out of. The movie draws many parallels with Rebel Wilson’s own journey.
Wilson’s family does not think she is as funny as they are in reality. As a matter of fact, Wilson never aimed for comedy at the beginning of her career. She took serious roles on stage, but the audience found her funny and laughed. The reaction initially upset Wilson, but would later on turn out to be her unique selling proposition in Hollywood.
The movie brings Rebel Wilson to the limelight, instead of her usual supporting roles or comedy supplemental touches. Trailers show Wilson fitting smoothly into the lead role with confidence. Also in the movie are India born Priyanka Chopra, playing a yoga ambassador and Adam DeVine.
The interesting part is the change Natalie s fall creates – It takes her to a world of her own PG-13 rated romantic comedy, swear words censored and her sudden shift into beautiful apartment and more attractive, expensive clothes.

Wilson was raised in Australia and studied at the Australian theater for young people. For someone who started as a shy girl in school, stepped cautiously into theater simply due to encouragement from her teacher, a young Australian woman who came to Hollywood with a bachelor’s degree in theatre and performance studies, Rebel Wilson s journey has been an inspiring one.
She began her journey with her stage musicals and followed up with some high quality stage productions. She moved to Hollywood in 2010 and her Fat Amy role in Pitch Perfect brought her the attention and acclaims.

Wilson’s immense talent was in full display in How to be single and she carries that strong character into this movie. Wilson’s natural inclination to comedy blends capriciously with her central character role in Isn’t it romantic and makes it a widely anticipated movie.
The movie is slated to be released on valentine’s day and that is very apt timing for a romantic comedy. The fantasy of garbage free NYC, huge apartment, romance hitting the most cynical architect is expected to keep audience interested, hopefully romantically.
